Is there a force in this wide universe more powerful or more patient than the grace of God? Name it if you can: I don’t know of it. If God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, what but our obstinate and persistent refusal could keep Him from clothing us, the objects of His everlasting love, with the spotless robe of Jesus’ perfect righteousness? Unless we refuse Him, and all He’s offering, He will bring us to the banquet hall of grace and plenty. There is a holy grip in grace that outlasts our worst sins and our best deeds. Nothing other than the exercise of our choice can keep Jesus from the exercise of His grace. So stay in grace. -Bill Knott
